Taylor Swift clarified that she does not have another surprise album up her sleeves after rumors of a possible third record circulated among her fans.

The award-winning singer addressed the speculations while guesting on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” as seen on the show’s YouTube page on Dec. 14.

Host Jimmy Kimmel noted that her supporters began to speculate about a third record called “woodvale” after finding the word on the cover of “folklore.” While Swift admits that she likes to drop hints for her fans, she assured that the word was not one of them.

“When I was making ‘folklore,’ the album that came out back in July, I was too afraid to even unveil the title of the album to even my closest teammates and management. I didn’t tell anybody the album title until right before it came out,” she explained.

Swift then used “woodvale” as a fake codename for the record since it had the same amount of letters as “folklore.”

“[I] wanted to see how it would look on the album covers, mocked them up, and then decided, I don’t actually want to have a title on the album covers and we forgot to take the fake codename off of one of them,” she added.

The singer also noted that she did the same thing for her second surprise album “evermore.” Swift had chosen “November” for the record’s mockup, but made sure to take it off of the materials before releasing “evermore.”

“We learned our lesson,” the singer said.

Kimmel then joked about another potential album, but Swift quickly told him that it was unlikely.

“Jimmy, I’m so tired,” she quipped. “I’m so exhausted. I’ve tired myself out. I have nothing left.”
